More About This show

Spring has arrived in Finland's vast forests, and the brown bears have awakened from hibernation to a grand feast of carcasses left over from the brutal winter. From now until late fall, these thousand-pound beasts will rule the land, but they're not alone. A mother gray wolf and her mate have seven pups to feed, and the only source of food is in the heart of bear country. The stage is set for an epic battle of speed, agility, and wit versus size, strength, and very bad tempers.
